    Tomcat TPS in Tamiya Paint

    I like Mission Models for my base TPS colors. I then spot paint with MM, decanted Tamiya, Vallejo, and even AK to get a decent spread of color variation. AK I use the least because their TPS colors tend to be too dark and too blue. Their medium grey is almost a match for MM's USN blue grey.
  2. Okay folks, Thanks to Viper730 the VF-194 decals are covered. I'm still looking for the VF-2 option.
  3. Thanks! Yikes! Feel better soon. I'm sick of hospitals so you have my sympathies, sir!
  4. Hi all, I'm looking for the low-vis VF-2 and low-vis VF-194 decals from Fightertown Decals 48075 Fightertown U.S.A. Part 1 sheet. If anyone has these to spare, even from a partially used sheet, I'd be happy to buy them from you. Thanks.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Any chance sprues F, H, and K for the F-14A are available for purchase? That and some Steel Beach parts I could convert the D to a B.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    How can we order them? Also, any chance the sprue with the F-14A instrument panels and ejection seats might be offered as well?

    Kinetic 48033 F/A-18D ATARS kit decal sheet

    I have one Kinetic kit already and will happily build more. My only complaint about this release is that it's a shame about the -533 option being removed. That's the squadron I'd build. Any other option for those markings?

    Italeri 1/72 Top Gun F-14 and A-4 set

    The number on Iceman's tail markings are movie accurate. VA-25 markings, VF-213 titles. Maverick's tail art came from an E-2 Hawkeye squadron. I normally don't buy cheap knockoff decals, but I think the ones I've seen on ebay are better quality than these.

    Thanks, guys. I ordered two sets from Hobby Easy. They look fantastic.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    I'm enjoying my Tamiya F-14D so far It's even better than their A! Any aftermarket source for closed aperture GE exhaust nozzles? The kit only has open ones and I am building this jet in cruise.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Thanks, Neeko. All the other stuff I knew, but the GPS dome I couldn't find references for and didn't trust the instructions. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    I am building the F-14D as a VF-11 line jet from 1996. Would this jet have had the GPS antenna on the spine? The instructions call for it on all options but I'm not sure this is true.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Anyone have some shots of the VF-11 option they could share? All sorts of imagry has been made public about the three high-viz liveries but nothing on the Red Ripper jet that I have seen.

    1/48 or 1/72 Carrier Airwing Decals?

    Sold for the VF-41, VA-82, and VA-35 markings!

    Fightertown Decals and the Tamiya Tomcat...

    Desert Storm and mid-90's era VF-213 would be cool to see. Gee, Brian. I guess you better stay in business and keep making decals.
